HI! I'M Rose
Welcome to La Pure Rose. This website is all about my art and Pacific Northwest life. For many years, I have wanted to start a website and to share my art work and its process with others as well as the beauty the PNW has to offer. I am excited to invite you to come along with me and explore my art and the beautiful places and sceneries of Washington State.
Although I am not originally from Washington state, I have lived in Bellingham, WA for over twenties years and it feels like home. My parents, siblings and I moved up from California when I was ten years old, and I can't imagine living anywhere else. I feel fortunate that I have been able to create a wonderful life with my husband and two children and our dog. It's been a great area to raise our family, not to mention, have access to so many outdoor activities like hiking, cycling, swimming, skiing and lots of trails to walk & run.
When I am not outside with my family, you can find me working on my art. Since I was a toddler, drawing has always been my favorite activity. For years it was always something I enjoyed doing on my own privately, but now I am ready to share this part of me with you all. I have always been intrigued by other artists and eager to learn new techniques and take on new challenges. My newest adventure is learning how to water color and painting in acrylic, which is really exciting.
I am happy that you are exploring my website, and if you have questions about WA, or my art, please feel free to email me. And, if you would like to have a customize painting or drawing, something specifically for you, please contact me and I would be happy to assist you.
